Cambridge Sculpture Trails
Cambridge has within easy reach of the city centre over seventy works of 20th and 21st century sculpture in sites accessible to the public. Not only are there some outstanding pieces by major international figures, but there is also work by many increasingly established and up-and-coming sculptors.
Cambridge Sculpture Trails has created three separate sculpture walks around the city to enable you to discover this rich diversity of works of art. Each trail has been tried and tested with Trail 1 and Trail 3 taking approximately two hours. Trail 2 is rather longer but can be conveniently divided into shorter sessions.
Three free guides are available at the Fitzwilliam Museum, Kettle’s Yard, Michaelhouse Café and the Cambridge Visitor Information Centre. They contain information about the sculptures, the artists and maps to help find them
The website www.cambridgesculpturetrails.co.uk is fully updated, gives more information, links to sculptor’s websites, and also has maps for each trail which can be downloaded. A schools section of the website has lots of ideas for activities to introduce children to sculpture in Cambridge and ideas about ways to create their own. This can be used by both teachers and parents.
And last but not least!
